I am removing an old bathroom vanity to replace it and I have removed all the screws from the back and sides but I can not get the vanity removed. It seems like it is toenailed to the floor somehow but I cant find where. Any ideas on how I should try removing it without totally breaking it?

It is a solid surface counter top and a wood construction frame. I would like to be able to sell it on craigslist or something of the like after removed.

Thanks!

Here is a picture of the bathroom vanity.

Nevermind, nothing a hammer and a prybar couldn't fix.

Well, I was wondering why my downstairs heating was so bad. I found the other duct I was looking for, for my forced air. It was right under the vanity. No wonder my heating bill was so steep.

So now I am going to have to decide where to move the duct to get the best heating possibility out of it.

I am going to get a free standing vanity so maybe there is enough clearance so I can just put a cover over it and use the air redirector to push the air out towards the door entrance. I have no idea if this is up to code or even allowed.

All I know is placing the vanity directly over a heating vent defiantly couldnt be up to par.

Unless your thermostat is in the bathroom, as bad as the install looks, I don't think it was the major cause of a high heating bill. The cabinet pretty much just sealed off the end of the duct and the heated air went to the other ducts.

But I gotta ask, didn't you ever wonder why the inside of the cabinet felt so warm?

I just moved into this place, and have been here about 2 months. The bathroom itself always felt balmy... And now it defiantly all makes sense.
